When arranging trips I always use TA and always review places I visit. I give an honest review whether good or bad as this is the whole point on this site. Normally even with the best places there is room from improvement somewhere, however in Olivers I have to report I am hard pushed to find one! We stayed in... More

We stayed in the Charles 1 room, which was lovely and clean. Leigh our host was very warm & welcoming. The continental breakfast and the cooked breakfast was very good and tasty. Will hopefully be back again.

We stayed at Olivers for 2 nights to attend a family wedding. Our host Leigh was so welcoming and friendly. She even booked a taxi for us to take us to the wedding venue as we had been unable to find an available one. We stayed in the Bingham room, which was nicely furnished with a comfy superking bed. Bottled... More

We stayed at Olivers for two nights over a beautiful sunny June weekend. Paul and Leigh gave us a wonderful warm welcome - just what you want from a good B&B. The room was well appointed (with lovely high ceilings), a good powerful shower, good wifi and a view of the castle. The breakfast was generous and delicious (heavenly scrambled... More

Although we only stayed for one night Leigh could not have made us more welcome. We were able to offload our cases before check in which was very helpful. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast - wow, absolutely wonderful. We did not need lunch! Car parking was arranged and we were able to leave the car just down... More

Oliver's is a must for anyone staying in Corfe Castle. Met by wonderful hosts, shown to a gorgeous room and fed a delicious home cooked breakfast; to order, not off a menu. I would definitely return to receive Leigh and Paul's hospitality

We only stayed one night but can recommend Oliver's. it's in the centre of Corfe Castle, they arranged parking for us, allowed us to leave our luggage early and were generally very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean, fairly spacious and the bed was comfortable. We had an ensuite shower room. The breakfast was beautifully cooked and as substantial... More

Hello So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and the room was up to scratch. Not sure how we managed to ruin the coffee during your breakfast though, sorry about that - ( I blame Paul!!)

We have been to this b & b 3 times now and each time it was very good. We would thoroughly recommend it...it is very central in this area of Dorset. The breakfasts are first class....the venue is comfortable and spotless and Leigh and Paul are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We will definitely visit again when in the area.
